Gordana Vunjak-Novakovic, Harvard-MIT Division of Health Science and Technology

Imagine a world where we could engineer living tissues to cure a disease, heal an injury, or fix a broken heart. Tissue engineering combines the principles of biology, engineering and medicine to create biological substitutes of native tissues. Can we use engineered tissue to better understand our own bodies? What are the promises of this new technology? What are the roadblocks and controversies?
